: because it's not about him. during the election, he was a lion. man, he tore mitt romney's face off, but when it's issues that aren't, you know, not necessarily related to his own personal career, not as much. >> cenk, that is exactly the thing that i find the most confusing about obama. here's a guy who during the election, he can run the new kind of campaign, exist in the new politics, he can get the dirty story told and also be the orator and be clean clean as a whistle up top. so he can do it all during the campaign, and then he wins the presidency. then to get it done, to push through legislation that has this kind of overwhelming popular support, he can't get it done. it's crazy to me. cenk: it's a matter of priorities mark, i'm telling you. it's the top priority for him to win, for himself personally, right? but the background check i think is a bit of an exception. i think he really did want that for his so-called legacy, as weak as i thought it was. everything else, you want me to water it down, keep 94 of the bush tax cuts and make them permanent? as long as i can take dow
in elections. it seems that was a miscalculation. stephanie reports. >> push after ar had come to court -- musharraf had come to court, hoping his bail would be extended once more. instead he was forced to flee. the judge refused to listen. he's accused of treason relating to his decision to suspend the constitution and declare a state of emergency when he still ran the country in 2007. the week has gone from bad to worse for musharraf, who returned to pakistan last month in the hope of making a political comeback. on tuesday, a court in peshawar disqualified from running in the parliamentary elections in may. now he finds himself effectively on the run. lawyers at the islamabad high court want the former president as he went through court, crying out, "look who's running away." >> i expect that that musharraf by the police. >> musharraf has gone to his farmhouse on the outskirts of islamabad, but is protected by high walls, razor wire, and guard towers. aside from the treason case, the former president faces several other legal charges, including the assassination of former prime minis
as violating the constitution. >> thank you very much. italy's parliament has failed to elect a new president, dragging out the political stalemate the country has been experiencing since deadlocked elections in february. >> despite two rounds of voting, no candidate received the necessary 2/3 majority. many members of parliament cast blank ballots. it remains unclear if italy's divided parties will be able to agree on a single candidate. to cyprus now where politicians are breeding much easier after the german parliament voted overwhelmingly to grant their parliament 10 billion euros in aid. >> a big majority for angela merkel's cyprus a deal. almost all the opposition parties backed the bailout. they voted with the government while slamming merkel's handling of the crisis. before the vote, the government said there was no alternative. the bundestag had to vote for the deal. no bailout would mean bankruptcy for cyprus and trouble for other struggling eurozone members. >> contagion could spread from cyprus across the entire eurozone, and that is why we believe cyprus needs financial aid. >> c
to the next presidential election. what was a romney loss by 4 would have been a romney loss by 7. i think that is driving part of this. >> following what michael said, the political ramifications. our first read team factors this into the president's overall list of goals, legislation he would like to see passed. let me read this. first read team says if congress passes immigration reform, this discussion about obama's legislative leadership had look like a silly exercise. he will have health care, financial reform, don't ask don't tell repeal, the fiscal cliff deal and immigration trophies on the wall. yet if immigration does not pass, it will be more than fair to note that obama was unable to navigate a divided congress. your reaction to that. >> i think this is certainly very important to the obama legacy in terms of immigration reform being one of his top priorities, if not the top priority for the second term. but he also has guns that was a failure. an upcoming debt debate. there are still quite a few other things that will be on the, on his plans in terms of how his legacy is actua
inconclusive elections, italy remains without a government. hopes that the main parties would form a grand coalition have been dashed by political squabbling. they talk about coalitions, they are finished. the story is finished. another story will start. why do you continue with this talk of coalition? >> attention now has turned to the election for successor george nepal ton know, whose term ends on may 15th. whoever takes over will have the key task of trying again to form a coalition or call fresh elections. so the president is chosen by an electoral college comprised of all national lawmakers and some regional representatives. to win any of the first three rounds, a candidate has to win two-thirds of the potential vote. from the fourth round on, an absolute majority is enough for victory. here are some of the suggested candidates. the five-star movement are backing left wing spishan stephaneo berdosa. many would back romano prodi. but prodi does not win berlusco berlusconi's report. the one candidate who appears to have united both berlusconi and bersani is former senate speaker franco
, has it really changed? >> it hasn't changed right now because we haven't had an election. what has to happen is one candidate in illinois who went down, she was the first one who went down. >> for the seat once held by jesse jackson jr. >> she was too close to the nra. in 2014, believe me. there are going to be republican members from suburban districts. not from real world districts but suburban districts who are on the wrong side of this issue and should be driven from public office from this immoral stand on this issue. when that happens that will send a very powerful message and in 2015 you will see legislation on this issue. >> i want to read you a portion of heidi heitkamp's statement. in part she said i thought long and hard about this. i've taken the tough meetings. i've heard overwhelmingly from the people of north dakota, and at the end of the day my duty is to listen and republican the people of north dakota, corwin saying the same thing, even though 90% say they support expanded background checks. the reality is we still have a divide. >> four democrats. >> but she was

.s. flag. the funding would be granted to the puerto rico elections commission to conduct objective voter education and a vote on options that would resolve puerto rico's future political status. key congressional leaders in the house and the senate, republican and democrat alike, have already issued statements of support for the president's action, calling it an appropriate response to the local referendum. . my constituents may not have a vote in a government that makes national laws, but they do have a voice and they make that voice heard loud and clear in november. a budget reflects one's priorities and values. i support the president's budget because it shows respect for the democratically express the aspirations of the u.s. citizens that reside in puerto rico and it demonstrates a clear desire to move forward on this complex but critical issue. as the budget request states, the federally sponsored vote is to be one that would result for puerto rico's political status. the only way to resolve the status is through statehood or national sovereignty. puerto rico cannot resolve its stat

too fix it before the 2014 elections because another poll in this district that mitt romney won by 18% in this ppp poll said that by a two to one margin, voters were less likely to vote for republicans in the future because of their vote on background checks. i've said it all along. i've warned the nra from the beginning, give a pass on this legislation you've supported before. don't put your feet in cement because you're going to get knocked over. you're going to get beaten to a pulp politically. and you are. can you believe this, willie? >> this is too easy. it's not even risky for you to say. >> who are these fools on capitol hill who bury their head in the sand and are in the minority in one of the most conservative districts in one of the most conservative states in america and go with wayne lapierre instead of ronald reagan, who are these fools that listen to survivalists and cower in the corner and allow al qaeda members to have more readily access to weapons? who are these people? >> there are a lot of them. >> there are. >> we showed their names last week. >> they're democrat
a trail, trying to make old faces new again. but can any of these folks actually get elected again? >>> good morning from washington. i'm chuck todd. this is your tuesday edition of "the daily rundown." it is april 23rd. right to my first reads of the morning. >>> 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev who was shot in the head, neck, leg and hands according to newly released documents, has been officially charged with using a weapon of mass destruction that resulted in three deaths and more than 170 injuries. he's also been charged with malicious destruction of property by means of an explosive device resulting in death. both charges carry the death penalty as a maximum sentence. tsarnaev was read his miranda rights in a brief bedside session in the intensive care unit at boston's beth israel hospital. the appearance began when a magistrate judge asked a doctor whether he was alert saying you can rouse him. according to a transcript of the appearance, tsarnaev nodded for times to questions but spoke just one word. when asked can you afford a lawyer, he answered simply -- no. the government

between winning this and losing. if you look at those democrats, anderson, all but one are up for re-election next year in very red states. in very pro gun states. that was something that was lard for the president to take, but his -- there's no question that he and the people around him understood the politics of it. i think what surprised them the most was that there was a conservative republican pat toomey on this piece of legislation, he was able to get virtually no republicans that they weren't -- they didn't sort of think they had them in the bag before. what happened? look, i think the president -- i don't think anybody would argue with the fact that the president made a very cogent argument today of what happened. it is politics, it is genuine fear of the gun lobby. and i talked to several people who were in the room with the senators who they thought were on the fence, and it's clear to them, they thought, that the senators were looking for ways to get out of it as opposed to ways to say yes. >> glower yarks president obama visibly angry and emotional today. which is not something we
republicans. >> obama: families that know unspeakable grief summoned the courage to petition their elected leaders, not just to honor the memory of their children, but to protect the lives of all of our children. a few minutes ago, a minority in the united states senate decided it wasn't worth it. >> michael: the amendment's odds looked so dim that joe manchin took to the senate floor this morning to make background a national security issue, by tying it to the fbi's most-wanted terrorist. >> our gun laws are so outdated and so out of whack that even this person who wants to do damage and harm to every american, even this american has figured out how to exploit them to arm themselves and people like him in our country. >> michael: connecticut senator chris murphy saw the result coming from a mile away. last night he tweeted . . . murphy of course represents newtown. in the 241 days since the slaughter of 20 school children and six educators, at least 3,482 americans have died in gun violence. that's about 134 new townes since newtown. these senators democrats and repu
, elected official, law enforcement, they really present us with a set of complex questions. and above all, though, i have to repeat that the justice department, our federal united states department of justice, has the responsibility to enforce the controlled substances act. and that remains unchanged. to -- no state, no executive can nullify a statute that's been passed by congress. as the department of justice has noted, though, federal drug enforcement resources -- just like i did as a police chief -- we prioritize and target the serious crimes. serious crimes of drug dealing, violent crime and trafficking. and let's be clear that law enforcement officials take an oath of office to uphold federal law, and they're going to continue to pursue drug traffickers and drug dealers and transnational criminal organizations, all of which weaken our communities, and they pose very serious threats to our nation. and too often discussions about marijuana, though, dwell on this issue of legalization and whether making the drug more widely and easily available -- which it would be when it becomes lega
hope not. i believe that the people, the american people spoke eloquently in election. that is the hiscttee voted 70% for the democrat. that opens -- perhaps immigration reform was an issue whose time had come. that's why will have an immigration bill. 70% of hispanics voted democratic but it wasn't that they had a change of heart or a change of mind. it's that they had a clear picture. the fog faded from how important this issue was too many people in our country. and i feel very confident about how we go forward on the immigration bill. i commend the a to senators for the work they did. of course, it's a compromise. when i change things? of course, i do think that's what a compromise is about. i'm proud of the pashtuns are recalling the gang of eight? i don't know. bipartisan team in the house that were for democrats, for republicans have been working on this issue for longtime and their proposals are very much like what had been in the senate. so we're pretty happy about the place that it is. don't get me wrong. it's not ago that i would have written. it's not somet
